in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su
